Shortly after Trump leaves Iraq, attack on US embassy

Just hours after US President Donald Trump flew out of the US Al Asad base in western Iraq, the US embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone came under attack on Thursday morning. Witnesses reported that a series of explosions were followed by a mortar attack in the vicinity of the embassy building. The US Marines guarding the embassy compound shut all the entrances to the building and fired warning shots.

DEBKAfile: This attack was staged either by ISIS, which regularly plagues the Iraqi capital with terrorist attacks, or the pro-Iranian Iraqi Shiite militias which are dedicated to driving US forces out of the country.

    Baghdad is another crazy place resembling to a city.
    But you can not put the blame on a place for issues created by its population.
